Oswego Industries: Abilities Define Us

Empowering Abilities, Enriching Lives

At Oswego Industries, we believe that abilities define us. Founded in 1968 by a dedicated group of families and advocates, our mission has been to offer adults with disabilities the tools for independence and fulfillment. From our base in Fulton, New York, we extend our support across Oswego, Onondaga, and Cayuga counties, providing employment support, day habilitation services, and more to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our Mission: Growth, Dignity, and Fulfillment for All

We are committed to partnering in the development of comprehensive community services. Our aim is to enhance the quality of life for everyone by offering the necessary support programs that enable individuals to grow with dignity, achieve their highest level of independence, and realize self-fulfillment.

Over the decades, Oswego Industries has evolved to offer a broad spectrum of services, including career and employment support, community integration activities, and site-based employment opportunities. We’re proud to support over 500 individuals and families annually, focusing on those with intellectual, developmental, physical disabilities, and behavioral health needs.

Fostering Purposeful Business Partnerships

Our Business Services division is built on partnerships with purpose. Utilizing our skilled workforce, we deliver high-quality custodial & janitorial services, contract sewing, assembly and packaging, warehousing and fulfillment, and document scanning and shredding services. In 2019, we expanded our capabilities to include the production of BioThane® and web belts for retail under the brand OI Wear.

Our Textiles Production Center stands at the forefront of creating apparel and fabric-based goods for the medical, government, and retail sectors, capable of transforming ideas into reality—from concept and design to prototype and production.

A Community of Support and Employment

Oswego Industries is more than a service provider; it’s a community. Our 85,000-square-foot facility is a hub of activity and employment for 100 individuals with disabilities, while our community integration employment program supports an additional 65 individuals in finding and maintaining fulfilling work.

As we continue to grow and adapt to the needs of those we serve, our commitment remains unwavering: to empower, to support, and to inspire. Join us in our journey towards creating a more inclusive world where every individual has the opportunity to shine.
